Singers have sung melodies about New York for years. From Alicia Keys to Frank Sinatra, there have been thousands of songs about The Big Apple produced and for very good reason. New York is the place where opportunity lies. It’s full of people with big dreams, big plans and ambition and it’s somewhere that should be on your bucket list. You don’t need any one reason to visit one of the greatest cities in the world, but we have some for you to reinforce that want to get on that plane and enjoy your fairy tale in New York.
Manhattan is the place everyone flocks to in New York. Of course, New York is so much more than just the city – the suburbs and the people living outside NYC are just as worthy places to visit. But Manhattan is the very heart of the city and is the home of Central Park, Times Square, The Statue of Liberty. All those monuments you would have grown up hearing about are here. There are plenty of tours that can take you through NYC and touch on every one of the main attractions that will be familiar to you even if you haven’t set foot in the city.
The food in NYC varies from fine dining to the street vendors carrying some of the most deliciously underrated hot dogs in their carts. The cuisine is eclectic and delicious and some of the most authentic dishes are here from pizza to doughnuts. You’ve probably grown up watching American sitcoms and heard about the fantastic pizza pies and sandwiches and bagels that New York City has to offer and that’s exactly what you will find.
The culture is also just as fantastic with some of the best museums in the world here. The Museum of Natural History is popular, renowned and packed with American and world history. A fashion capital all on its own, New York City is packed with some of the most well-known shopping malls in the world and is home to the offices of the biggest fashion magazines known to man. For those of you who love to spend and shop, you’ll fit right in on Fifth Avenue. Breakfast at Tiffany’s wasn’t legendary for nothing, you know!
Those famed yellow taxis wind their way through all the streets, including Broadway. Some of the best shows in the world start here and if starring in a Broadway show, you know you have arrived. If possible, take someone with you to visit New York City. Sure, you could experience it all alone, but marvelling at some of the sights should be done with people, people are what matters after all. Taking a bite out of the Big Apple doesn’t mean packing up and moving there to live, but injecting a little something into your life. Passion, excitement and culture are all what you get when you touchdown in one of the most exciting cities in the world.
